"In his 1989 book The Selfish Gene, Atheist evolutionist Richard Dawkins proclaims that, “Our brains are separate and independent enough from our genes to rebel against them.” He sounds so knowledgeable and convincing that admirers hold this quote to be a gem of Dawkins superior thinking and lifetime dedication to promoting the greatness of the theory of evolution. However, the only thing emblematic for his lifetime input into the public conversation on evolution is that nothing in that statement is true, and that same as in many other instances, the ordinary people would not know it.
A rebellious brain having a mind of its own is Dawkins’ way of implying that the brain is the one that makes decisions, not our spirit/soul. This reductionist intellectualist assumption defies common sense and has no support in genetics, according to data made available in Genes, Brain and Behavior, a medical journal published by the International Behavioral and Neural Society. The other message in his statement is brains and genes are never on the same page, they are “separate and independent” of each other, says the millionaire master of misinformation who sells pseudo-science to the trusting masses. According to the National Institute of Neural Disorders and Stroke, “At least a third of the approximately 20,000 different genes that make up the human genome are active (expressed) primarily in the brain. This is the highest proportion of genes expressed in any part of the body. These genes influence the development and function of the brain, and ultimately control how we move, think, feel, and behave.” (Brain Basics, Genes at Work in the Brain)
Indeed, you could not be more disconnect from scientific fact and reason than Richard Dawkins is. Genuine science contradicts most everything this media glorified, this darling of the academia 12-book-published multi-millionaire evolutionist claims with confidence in front of unsuspecting audiences. He would not act on his own, though.
When one repeatedly makes false claims in public, sooner or later the people are going to catch on to that and things will inevitably get embarrassing for both perpetrator and his enablers. Seven years after he wrote that “Our brains are separate and independent enough from our genes to rebel against them,” in yet another Dawkins best-selling book derided by the non-affiliated segment of the scientific community, something he titled The God Delusion, he claims now, also without producing any proof, that matter and living things preceded intelligence, meaning intelligence has appeared later during the process of life development on this planet.
In the end, and there will be more in the pages ahead on Dawkins’ bizarre, when not irrational, more often than not incoherent input into the debate, the badge-of-honor quote from The Selfish Gene turns out to be an emblem for the state of confusion and lack of honesty when it comes to the theory of evolution characterizing a Darwinist community he would represent. Just in case anyone wonders, church creationists do not earn any points on account of his failures."
